Acquittal: Senator Ugbane asks NASS to update website


National Assembly

Senator Nicholas Ugbane, who represented Kogi East in the 5th and 6th National Assembly, has urged the federal legislature to update its website to reflect the decisions of two separate courts sitting in Abuja that discharged him of allegations of corruption in two cases.

In a statement, yesterday, by his media assistant, Abel Ada-Musa, the Senator said it is imperative to put the records straight, stressing that the records and website of the National Assembly where he served in the 5th and 6th senate have continued to reflect the pendency of the said cases.

During the 6th Senate, specifically in 2009, Senator Ugbane and some members were charged at the High Court Abuja in suit No: FCT/HC/CR/39A/2009 and the Federal High Court Abuja, No: FHC/ABJ/CR/89/2009, for alleged commission of certain corrupt offences.

He said: “Despite the decisions of two separate courts sitting in Abuja, discharging him of the allegations of corruption in the two cases, the distinguished Senator Nicholas Ugbane has continued to be an unhappy man.
